Autumn Family Getaways from Gatwick: Orlando
|October 31, 2012||Posted by under Events, Places|
Orlando is the ultimate in family holiday destinations. Wherever you have been before, and whatever you might imagine it to be, Orlando will most definitely surpass any expectations you may have.
Click here to look at cheap family rooms at Gatwick airport and relax before your ten hour journey to the most exciting of the southern America states.
Getting the kids out of bed, packing last minute essentials and travelling to the airport at the crack of dawn can get your once in a lifetime escape off to an exhausting start. Prepare for an action packed fortnight by eliminating any unnecessary stress from your journey.
This year’s October half term coincidently falls over the Halloween period. Whether you have already booked your stay during this season, or you are currently looking for the best last minute deals, you can expect the very best special events at some of the most highly acclaimed attractions in the world.
Scarefest parades and productions are surely to be on show, guaranteeing that your family will be right at the heart of any macabre celebrations.
October also marks the end of Florida’s stormy season. As the humidity clears and the temperature cools slightly, you will find that the mid-twenty degrees C temps are ideal for long days out in the open air, strolling around parks endlessly.
As you land in Stansted and make your way to the hotel, take the opportunity to swot up on the various days out on offer and consider which tickets to purchase from your rep.
If you are looking for cost efficient options, the Orlando Flexi Plus ticket allows unlimited 14 consecutive days access into the Universal Parks, SeaWorld, Aquatica and Busch Gardens at Tampa.
Although Busch Gardens is located close to Clearwater, transport to and from the park is included free with your Flexi Plus ticket, departing from the Universal Parks.
The Disney World Resort Florida is bigger than anything you will have experienced before. Much more than a simple theme park, Disney is a resort of three main park areas (Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot), an authentic African Safari (Animal Kingdom), and two themed waterparks. Entertainment and dining facilities can also be found at The Boardwalk.
It is perfectly possible to do the Disney parks in a week, but 14 consecutive day passes are currently on sale for the price of a week’s pass. This offer has been ongoing for a number of months now, and there has been no word of it ending anytime soon.
Make the most of your time in Orlando and explore the Disney World Resort to the full. It is after all, the place where dreams come true and magic comes to life.
As well as the main attractions that everyone has on their Orlando itineraries, there are a number of lesser known hot spots to check out.
LEGOLAND Florida is the largest of the LEGO inspired theme parks, and includes a waterpark, new for 2012. Gatorland, and the Pirates Dinner Adventure are bound to be a hit with kids and adults alike.
Forget the stress of early morning airport trips and simply wander to your terminal in time for your long haul check in from a bargain Gatwick Airport hotel.
